Dream holiday right at home!

Help the local economy and have a good time! We all know that, when facilities are local, many of us do not take advantage of them. This year, my wife and I are going to change all that. I'm a pensioner and my wife is a bit younger.

Help the local economy and have a good time! We all know that, when facilities are local, many of us do not take advantage of them. This year, my wife and I are going to change all that.I'm a pensioner and my wife is a bit younger. We normally have a few trips abroad each year but, as the credit crunch has arrived, we are going to take a different view of holidays in 2009.For at least one week this year, and probably more, we are going to stay in our house in East Devon but pretend that we are in a hired, self-catering holiday house we have booked near to the wonderful resorts in East Devon. We shall spend our days on the beach at Sidmouth, Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton, Branscombe and Beer and we shall enjoy ice creams on the esplanades, lunches at restaurants in the resorts and buy produce for our splendid dinners from East Devon shops to eat at our holiday villa!Gosh. I'm excited - something really different. We shall enjoy super days and help the local economy the same time. See you on the beach! Tony Wilkinson,Charnwood, Warren Park, West Hill, Ottery St Mary
